Afternoon delight..

Afternoon delight. ...

Being at home, for some reason, inspires me to ferment. Although sourdough is experiencing a renaissance comparable to its Michael Pollanian-fueled 2016 popularity, my current fermentation attempt is kombucha. I like that kombucha scobies take well to neglect and require little more than sitting in a dark cabinet—whereas with sourdough, I never could remember to feed the starter. But given this is only my first batch, it’s too soon to tell how the scoby will handle my caretaking! What’s your fermentation of choice?.

Thanks to everyone for tuning into my stories on home sustainability (with houseplant intermissions)! I’ve pinned them to my highlights if you missed any. I’ve gotten a lot of great responses and am happy to see that I’ve inspired a few of you to make small sustainable switches. I really believe that the people who make the biggest difference are the ones that do the little things consistently. Comment below if you would like to see more home sustainability in my stories, and if so, what products or solutions are you looking for? I’ve got toonnnssss more :)

Here is a sustainable switch that is also really easy— @dropps laundry pods. @dropps makes plastic free laundry and dishwasher detergent pods that are also free of harsh chemicals and dyes. I just finished my initial trial of laundry pods and loved them so much I bought a bulk pack (800+ pods) with a few girlfriends, which brought the per pod cost to about 25 cents!! Easy on the environment and the wallet. I also use their dishwasher pods and will probably do another girlfriend-bulk buy when I run out!

Still feeling it from that @corepoweryoga class I did last. We typically stick to @orangetheory, but love exploring new ones. What have you been doing to keep active and move it during this time?? I’m always into trying new things! 😊 #livelikemad.

We've been baking more lately at our house, so we've been reaching for our beeswax wraps a lot more often 😜 After over a year of washings, my homemade beeswax wraps were losing their effectiveness so I took a little time to recoat them 💚

I set my beeswax wrap on a baking sheet, then sprinkled it with grated beeswax. I put it in a warm oven (200F) for a couple minutes to melt the beeswax, and now it's as good as new! 😃

Beeswax wraps replace plastic wrap, and they're so easy to make (kids can do it! 👍). If you want to make your own, I've got instructions at tinytrashcan.com/diy-beeswax-wrap (link in bio)

Back to baking for me! Next recipe: chocolate zucchini bread 😋

I’ve been using my time at home during this COVID-19 pandemic to get back to my sewing machine! I upcycled an old black bedsheet into these comfy summer shorts! Let’s hope things settle down by the summer so I can actually wear these outside! 🤞🏻. Anyone else feel the creative juices flowing during self isolation? On another note: can you guess how many hours I put into these? 🤣 #upcycle #fashionrevolution #whomademyclothes.

Has anyone else been lacking on their water intake during this quarantine?! Just trying to catch up over here... with my mason jar + metal straw... ❤️ more h2o is definitely on the list for things to improve upon in April! How about you?! What are you thoughts on April intentions?! I’d love to hear... #livelikemad.

Sometimes I don’t feel like I can make a difference. I’m trying to live a more eco-friendly life, but seeing how big the problem is only make me think how small my impact is. But if many people unite and try to change their lifestyle, we can all make a greater impact. And we really are making a difference, even if it’s in our own home. .

Eco tip ~ think about your water consumption! 💦⁠
⁠
Less than 3 % of the world’s water is good for drinking. Out of this, 2.5 % is frozen in the Arctic, Antarctica and glaciers. This means that we only have 0.5 % of freshwater to serve the entirety of humanity. *gulp* Here are some simple changes we can all make to conserve water in the home⁠
⁠
~ Turn the tap off! While you’re brushing your teeth, while you’re handwashing dishes and while you’re soaping up your hands...⁠
⁠
~ Use water from cooking pasta or rice to water your plants! Just wait until it cools down otherwise you will harm their roots ⁠
⁠
~ Look at how your appliances use water… Just by swapping to an energy-smart washing machine, you can save more water in one year than one person drinks in their entire lifetime. Woah! Sometimes it’s even better to use your dishwasher instead of hand washing your dishes.⁠
⁠
How else can we save water? Let us know in the comments!.

Use corn starch as a low waste dry shampoo replacement! I think tapioca starch, arrow root powder, or maybe even potato starch could work as well. For darker hair, I’ve heard bentonite clay also works great. #zerowaste #zerowastebeauty #zerowasteliving #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastehome #zerowasteswaps #sustainableliving #sustainabilitytips.
